Monthly and annual sales figures for the Bisu T3 in China.

Like the Bisu M3 MPV, the T3 is built on an existing platform from its sister brand Huansu. It shares its technical DNA with the Huansu S2 and Huansu S3, but not its 1,3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 132hp and 185Nm of torque, mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. Its Huansu siblings are powered by naturally aspirated 1,5-liter engines, just like the Bisu M3. And while the M3 is styled as a traditional (and conservative) MPV, the Bisu designers were in a much more frivolous mood when they drew the T3. An increasing number of brands are desperately trying to make sure each of their models bears the corporate styling so that it’s easily recognizable as coming from that brand, but Bisu clearly hasn’t gotten that memo, as the M3 and T3 almost couldn’t be further apart in terms of styling. And that goes for both exterior and interior. One explanation for this could be the (unconfirmed) rumors that several designers who had been working on the upcoming CS55 for competitor Changan (also based in Chongqing) may have taken some inspiration from that model when they made their move to the new Bisu brand.

The T3 is also a fair bit smaller than its MPV sibling, at 4.350/1.825/1.685mm with a 2.565mm wheelbase. With its more modern engine, it’s a bit more expensive than the M3. Prices for the T3 start at 74.900 yuan (€ 10.200,- / US$10,900) and run up to 86.900 yuan (€ 11.800,- / US$12,600). This is also higher than the Huansu S3 and the Chery Cowin X3, but similar to the FAW Xenia R7 and the Chery Tiggo 3.

Car sales statistics from China only include domestic production and exclude imported models.
